Jet Pulverizer is a global leader in the micronization and fine milling of Silicon Metal, as well as many other materials. The super fine particle size reduction of Silicon Metal is just one of our many specialties.
Silicon is a chemical element with the symbol Si. About 25 percent of the Earth’s crust is silicon. Silicon metal, in its pure form, is a grey metalloid element and China is the major producer. Silicon is used mainly in the manufacture of silanes and silicones, as a hardener element to produce aluminum alloys, and in the manufacture of micro-processors and solar cells. The industry is investing in R&D for the development of high value silicon bound to the photovoltaic market, and in the battery applications.
Micronization enhances surface area, flowability, and processability of silicon metal.Contact us to learn more
